Encore post: For Tami
Toast lay on the cool vinyl floor. The radio was on again and the day was fresh. Smells of summer came in through the window, filling the kitchen with heated scents of summer flowers. It was too warm to move, and the cool floor felt like a bath. It was a blast getting into Tami’s yarn stash, and she looked so consterned when she discovered it. Speckle was in the other room reading the paper. Toast listened to Chopin’s Prelude – “Raindrop” – the drop of the repeated note making him drowsy. One day cats would take over the world. For now, they slept.
A few months ago I offered to write a story about Tami’s cats, Toast and Speckle, in a future blog post. Then, when I made this sketch last month, it fit with an end-of-summer story. Tami writes a blog called “Tanglewood Knots,” about crocheting and sometimes baking.
It’s been hot and wildfire-ashy here the past two days, humid as well. I’m ready for the weather to break. I think that’s why this post appealed to me so much today. I feel so much like the cat in the sketch!
And a big “Hello!” out there to all my blogging friends’ feline friends! (You know who you are!)
